Loans are initially for 28 days. The interest is paid for this period in advance. The deposited collateral is held by the protocol when you take out a loan.
Collateral valued at 150% of the loan (300% if SOV is collateral) is required.
Interest for the initial duration is included in the amount borrowed.
If the borrower repays the debt before the current end date, the borrower will get a refund of the pre-paid interest for all remaining days as well as all the deposited collateral minus the loan origination fee (0.09%).
If the borrower doesn't repay the loan before the end date, the loan rolls over for a month at the same fixed APY.
When the value of the deposited collateral falls below 115% of the debt, a gradual liquidation of the collateral is initiated. The process liquidates the amount of collateral required to bring the collateral ratio back up to 120%. This process will repeat over and over if the price continues to move against the borrower. This gradual liquidation can result in the complete depletion of the borrower's deposited collateral.
protects lenders by transferring the borrower's collateral to the lender a loan is unpaid.
incentivizes borrowers to maintain sufficient collateral to cover their loans.

The borrowing rate is determined by the utilization rate of the lending pool. The lending rate and borrowing rate vary as the utilization rate of the lending pool changes. The borrowing rate will increase gradually until the protocol reaches 75% pool utilization. When more than 75% of the pool is being utilized, the borrowing rate increases significantly to discourage borrowing.
The system is designed to reduce the borrowing rate when it is too high by increasing the interest rate. This encourages more people to lend to the pool in return for high interest, thereby reducing the utilization rate and the borrowing rate.
The borrowing rate displayed on the dapp is the minimum interest the next borrower will have to pay. It is a function of current utilization rate of the lending pool. Since not all borrowers pay the same interest, the average interest all borrowers have to pay is distributed uniformly to lenders through LP (liquidity pool) tokens based on the utilization rate of the pool. For example, if average interest rate all borrowers are paying is 10% and utilization rate of the lending pool is 50%, then each LP token will receive 5%.
When taking out a loan, the borrower must supply a 150% over-collateralized deposit (300% if SOV is used) to secure the original loan amount. The collateral is used to secure the loan from price fluctuations and to collateralize further interest payments if the loan is rolled over.
If you repay before the current end date, the remaining balance of the interest will be refunded. The interest charged is then distributed to the lenders and protocol (90% to lenders, 10% protocol).
If you do not repay before the current end date, all prepaid interest is distributed to the lenders and the protocol. The current loan is then extended for a month. However, your collateral ratio is now lower because you have paid the fees for the previous 28-day period and are prepaying interest for the new 28-day period.
The value of your collateral must represent at least 115% of your debt. If the value of your collateral falls below 115% of your debt, then your collateral will undergo an incremental liquidation process.
